Please deliver your video reference file with visible burn-in timecode.
We prefer either of the following formats:
Apple ProRes Proxy
Avid DNxHD/HR (Please use DNx36/45/LB/SQ formats as applicable to the framerate, 8-bit encoding)
note: H.264/5 files cannot be confirmed to be frame-accurate and as a result, may present sync issues in the mix session timeline.
Track layout in your delivered AAF/OMF should follow the layout below as closely as possible:
– Top tracks – Voiceover/Narration
– Talking Heads/Sit-down Interviews (if applicable)
– Primary dialog, split out by character as much as possible
– B-Roll/Nat Sound
– Added SFX & Sound Design
– Final Tracks – Stereo music
